This is my 1st Ride Report, bear with me..will probably make some mistakes, but at my age, I've done plenty before. We started the T.A.T. last August. I did a Google based blog and it worked out fine, but the ride report will get to a lot more people. If you'd like to read what we did, and see the pictures, follow this link: http://tat-trip-2010.blogspot.com/2010/08/introduction.html This link takes you to the Introduction page. One the far right edge, is a list of all the reports, by date. Start at bottom, and just click on each day. Sometimes I've seen it where you can just scroll from day to day, other times, you have to go back and click each day... Okay, 2011. On Monday August 8, my friend Brooks and I (Doug) loaded the bikes in the truck, and headed towards B-ville,Bartlesville) OK. This is the closest "city" to where we ended last year. Made it to Econo Lodge in Bartlesville about 5pm on the 9th. The 3rd member of our group,(Rich, a/k/a Columbus) (you'll have to read last years adventure to learn how we named him that), had left home on his bike (2010 Honda XR650L) and would meet us here tonight. Other bikes: Doug- 2008 KLR 650, Brooks 2003 BMW Dakar 650 We're all running Dunlop D606's on rear, Brooks and I have them on front also, Rich has a Metzler Unicross. I attached a picture of Rich, getting ready to load up at Econo Lodge. Haven't figured out how to attach more than one photo, so will do next few days ASAP and add more pictures.
